Lately, some of my Bible readings inspired me to write on the theme “Who i am in Christ“. Let’s trace the story from the beginning. It is our crowning day as God’s most favourite intelligent beings. God created all things, visible and invisible. Because he is the creator, He is also the rightful owner of all things. As it is written in Colossian 1:16,“For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him” NIV
In addition to being the rightful owner, God also rules over all of the creation; his authority is final.
According to Genesis 2:7, I am a creature that God formed(יָצַר – yatsar) from the dust of the ground, He breathed into my nostrils the breath of life, and I became a living being.
God made me:-
- Like a potter, God crafted me.
- God made me with skill and intention
- I am complex and complicated
- I have God’s life-breath in me.
I am a creature. I am a living being formed in the likeness of God.
